[edit] Location

Just off the interstate, near a truck weigh station.

[edit] Plans

This was the first hash that looked both not terribly far away, and likely to be reachable in the last few weeks, so I decided to try for it after work.

[edit] Expedition

After work, I drove out towards the hash point. As I neared the weigh station, I noticed that the fence along the interstate had orange markers every 600ft or so, which is as good as no trespassing signs under Idaho law. I pulled in at the weigh station, and while on their entrance ramp passed within 300 ft of the hash point. However, they were open at the time and had numerous signs prohibiting parking except by authorized vehicles, so I just drove through and got back on the interstate. At the next exit I turned around and went back to the first exit northwest of the weigh station, to try to access the hash point from that direction. However, my attempt ended in a locked gate with a 'No Trespassing' sign, about a mile from the hash.
